Port Moody is an ocean-side community at the head of scenic Burrard Inlet. Gorgeous mountains, parks and forests are just some of the attractive features this city has to offer. When it comes to balance, Port Moody has much to offer: from a beautiful setting, to a friendly small town atmosphere, to a great place to do business.
Port Moody is centrally located just 45 minutes from both Vancouver International Airport and the Canada-United States border. It is one of the three communities that make up the Tri-cities consisting of Port Coquitlam and Coquitlam.
Many residences have access to some of these outstanding locations for leisure activities: Noon's Creek Fish Hatchery near the Civic Recreation Centre; the Port Moody Station Museum; the new Port Moody Arts Centre; Belcarra Regional Park on Burrard Inlet with shoreline picnic areas and forest walks; Sasamat Lake, ideal for a family outing with fresh water swimming, sandy beach and trails; Buntzen Lake, with shoreline and mountain trails, picnic sites, canoe rentals and sailing; or Port Moody's well known Foreshore Park, a scenic four kilometre shoreline trail with bird watching, Rocky Point Pier, beaches and boat launching ramp.
There's plenty one can see and do in and around Port Moody. After a great day outdoors, visit Port Moody's many shops and attractive restaurants... view art exhibits and displays in the Port Moody Arts Centre... enjoy a performance in the new Inlet Theatre or step back in time by visiting the Port Moody Station Museum, the station having been the western terminus of the Canadian Pacific Railway when Port Moody welcomed Canada's first transcontinental train on July 4, 1886.
You'll be sure to enjoy Golden Spike Days, the annual rail theme festival held in late June and early July along with the World Hand Car Racing Championship. The city's rail history and marine links are two reasons Port Moody is well known for its appeal as a film location.
With 27 kilometres (17 miles) of waterfront in the region, boating and sailing are much a part of Port Moody's leisurely lifestyle. Marine sales and service, in fact contribute significantly to the local economy.
